Bodega Bamz, Joell Ortiz, Nitty Scott MC & Salaam Remi are No Panty. They’ve got a new mixtape for you.

Supergroups in rap have been as commonplace as crews themselves, from The Juice Crew to the mythical Commission to Murder Inc & The Throne. Joell Ortiz knows a thing about supergroups as a member of Slaughterhouse. Now the New York bred emcee is linking with two other NYC standouts in Bodega Bamz & Nitty Scott MC for a brand new group.

No Panty is a bit different from other groups. Whereas most crews manage to fit two rappers and a producer, No Panty is composed of three solid emcees and a venerable producer in Salaam Remi. The group released their first mixtape yesterday, Westside Highway Story LP. Consisting of 13 new tracks, its a project exclusively produced by Remi where Bamz, Ortiz & Scott flex the best of their talents.

Each of the four No Panty members have distinct resumés. There’s Remi, the noted producer who’s helped steer beats for Nas, Amy Winehouse & Mack Wilds. Ortiz has earned his keep on the New York rap scene mainly due to complicated rhyme schemes and punchlines. Bodega Bamz has eaten up tracks with the best of them and earned headway with All Eyez Off Me mixtape. Nitty Scott has operated not just as a flowery Earth-centric emcee but a femme fatale who’s been on our radar since 2010.

Westside Highway Story LP buries itself deep in Latin heritage. The sonics snap and feel right out of PR are wed with Remi’s penchant for boom bap breakbeats and more. Considering how well versed all three emcees are in the classics, Westside Highway Story is a return to the norm.
